Dead Island 2

Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios are equally thrilled and relieved to confirm today that the long-anticipated next entry in their world-renowned zombie slaying saga, Dead Island 2, has GONE GOLD. As a celebration, the two companies have also decided to shorten the wait for fans and release the game one week earlier than previously announced. The zombie slaying will now commence on Friday, April 21. Pinky swear.

A deadly virus is spreading across Los Angeles, turning its inhabitants into ravenous zombies. The city is in quarantine, and the military have retreated. Bitten, infected, but more than just immune, you learn to harness the tainted powers running through your veins. Only you – along with the handful of other swaggering assholes who happen to be resistant to the pathogen – hold the future of Los Angeles (and humanity) in the balance. You were born for this. As you uncover the truth behind the outbreak, you’ll uncover the truth of who – or what – you are. Survive, evolve, save the world – just another day in HELL-A.

The groundbreaking Dead Island franchise first hit the scene in 2011 with one of the most viewed video game trailers of all time. The latest installment, which was announced with a gloriously gory trailer during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live event in 2022, takes players on a blood-soaked, pulp voyage to escape Los Angeles, now nicknamed HELL-A, as it descends into zombie-infested chaos with all the over-the-top action and dark humor that fans will be expecting.

Leading up to the game’s release, Deep Silver will be revealing more gameplay and trailers for fans of the franchise to enjoy before they embark on their own fight for survival this April.

Pre-orders are available now. Dead Island 2 will release on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation5, PlayStation4, and for PC exclusively at the Epic Games Store.
